The Sea of Monsters

Hermes mentions to Percy that the Overnight Express business is booming, and later Poseidon also uses the service to send Percy a letter, which Hermes personally delivered.

Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes

While Percy is celebrating his one month anniversary with Annabeth Chase, a Hermes Express truck appeared on the lawn in front of them. No one else in the area noticed it except them. Hermes enlisted Percy to find his Caduceus so he could make his deliveries on time. Percy retrieved the staff and Hermes finished his deliveries.

The Mark of Athena

When Annabeth Chase is on her quest for the Mark of Athena under the city of Rome, she stumbles across a box from Hermes delivery services. She is excited, because it may be something to help with her quest. When she opens the crate, however, all that is left inside is bubble wrap. Annabeth later realizes it was a gift and uses it as gauze for her broken ankle.
